Shortly after the world started working from home a few months ago, I was surprised to find that my laptop didn't even have a webcam. It was not a feature that I had looked after until that moment. The bad news for you is that you have probably noticed that it is terrible even if your laptop has a webcam. And whether you're preparing to return to school at home or just more of the same zoom calls with Bob from Accounting, now may be a good time to improve your video call quality with a discount. The The Depstech 2K webcam currently costs $ 32 if you apply the 20% coupon on the product page.

This Depstech is already one of the cheaper 2K webcams on Amazon and is currently a good deal. (It was actually a little bit better yesterday than the deal would have brought you the webcam for $ 30 flat rate, but $ 32 is still a good deal.)

The camera records 2,560 x 1,440 QHD videos – roughly four times the resolution of the HD webcam that comes with many laptops – and uses two microphones to apply automatic noise reduction to your audio. It also performs automatic exposure compensation, which can be helpful when you are in a dark room or with backlighting and appearing in the shadow. The camera is mounted on top of your laptop or desktop monitor or can stand alone on the desktop.

This plug-and-play webcam is practically universal. It works with almost all versions of Windows (including XP, 7, 8 and 10) and the Mac.
